In the town where I work there are currently three charity shops (thrift stores in the US?) with photo equipment for sale. One has a just a few items, another has devoted both window display areas either side of the entrance to it and yesterday I noticed another shop with about three 35mm SLR bodies and a few lenses also prominently in a window display area. One of the lenses was a huge thing. I couldn't see any markings on it but I would guess it was 300mm and had a filter thread of about 72mm or 77mm. No idea what lens mount it was. The shop was closed so I couldn't go in and look but I knew that with a price tag of £5 on it, I had to have it! I went back today at lunchtime but it was gone. I did get a Rokkor 50mm lens for £3 though which I have already posted off to the person I gave a Minolta SRT body to a couple of days ago via the free stuff thread. This shop also has another couple of Minolta bodies. An old SR and an X-500 - both for £5. I think I will get them! Has anyone else seen a lot of photo stuff in charity shops recently? Steve.
